The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) has organized a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) for the first cohort of faculty members who are teaching in the CORE during Spring 2013.
Teaching in the CORE establishes a highly collaborative, hands-on, computer-rich, interactive learning environment for students. The social interactions between students and instructors serve as the “active ingredient” to engage in hands-on activities, in-depth discussions, simulations, or questions and problem solving. The CORE FLC allows faculty members to share pedagogical methods and classroom management techniques with their peers.
The first FLC will be for current instructors teaching in the CORE during Spring 2013. CTE will offer more FLCs to faculty who are interested in teaching in the CORE in the future.
Four weekly meetings
March 7th, 14th, 28th, April 4th (No meeting on March 21st due to Spring break).
Jeff Kelly (Biology), Hank Jenkins-Smith (Political Science), Phil Chilson (Meteorology), Ron Halterman (Chemistry), Petra Klein (Meteorology), Renee McPherson (Geography), Susan Postawko (Meteorology), Mark Morrissey (Meteorology), Ben Holt, (Botany/Microbiology), Tyrrell Conway (Botany/Microbiology), Carol Silva (Political Science)
